So for my Snow Day I shoveled the driveway, with a special shout out the kids next door for helping! What a blessing! And so I also got the chance to do some baking. Which is my other favorite thing to do. I made these lovely cookies from Taste of Home’s Best Loved Cookies & Candies. It is the book that they put out every year around Christmas.
Soft Sugar Cookie Puffs
This recipe was submitted by D. Elaine Rutschke from Spruce View, AB to Taste of Home.
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup sugar
2 tsp butter, melted
1 tsp almond extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
Assorted colored sugars, optional
In a bowl, beat eggs; add cream and beat well. Beat in the sugar, butter and almond extract. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add sugar mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2 inch cookie cutters dipped in flour. Place 1 inch apart on greased baking sheets. If desired, sprinkle with colored sugars, pressing sugar into dough if needed.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
I only baked them for 10 minutes and they turned out perfect. So light and yummy!
Have a blessed day!
